WINE – Commission Draft Regulation on ‘Production processes for aromatised wine products’

The Commission has published a proposal on this topic.  Documents are available on this site.  The following is an extract from the start of the proposal:

Context of the Delegated Act

Regulation (EU) No 251/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the definition, description, presentation, labelling and the protection of geographical indications of aromatised wine products empowers the Commission to adopt delegated acts for the establishment of authorised production processes for obtaining aromatised wine products.

The purpose of this delegated act is to establish such authorised production processes, taking into account the production processes recommended by the International Organisation of Vine and Wine (OIV).

This initiative is not included in the REFIT agenda. However, the proposal has been drafted taking into account the guiding principles of 'better regulation'.
